Sterling silver frog charm, ring, pendant and brooch
Some great ideas for sterling silver frog pendants, rings, brooches and earrings to buy
In several cultures, the frog is thought to be a symbol of good luck. For example, people from Japan will often take a small frog charm or amulet with them when they go travelling in order to help ensure a safe journey home. And in the world generally (including the West), we think of frogs as being associated with transition and change, because of the major changes that frogs go through during their life cycles - rather like butterflies, in fact. So if you or someone you know is going through some big changes, then a piece of frog jewellery might be just the thing to help you (or them) keep focused. It could be a teenager doing exams, or someone getting married or going for a big job interview... a charm, ring, pendant or brooch with a frog motif could be just the gift they would appreciate (always assuming they like frogs that is!)
I've concentrated on sterling silver frog jewellery in this hub because it's affordable yet is also a precious metal whose value is always going up. Furthermore, sterling silver suits most people, because it looks good on a range of skin tones. Amazon.com has a great choice of sterling silver frog jewellery, at prices to suit most pockets.
Sterling silver frog ring
If it's a ring you're after then you can go plain-yet-elegant, or outrageously jewel-encrusted - it's up to you. For example, Bling Jewelry's sterling silver cocktail ring is made from gold vermeil (gold-plated sterling silver), and is embellished with CZ (cubic zirconia) stones in different colours. This ring is quite striking and certainly lives up to the company's name! But you can find more restrained silver frog rings, whether plain, oxidised or even studded with marcasites, for a vintage/Victorian look. [cont/d below]

Sterling silver frog brooches and earrings
When it comes to frog earrings and brooches, it's possible to choose from a range of gemstones, including amber. Or try enamel - one company you might not have come across is Zarah, which specialises in enamelled sterling silver pieces, often with an animal theme (their silver cat earrings and pendants are fab). Zarah also does sterling silver and enamel frog brooches, some of which come with matching earrings. The frog montage pin and earrings (designed by Sue Coccia) both have a gorgeous butterfly design on them in blue. If you want earrings but not necessarily a matching brooch, then Zarah's "love frog" dangle earrings (designed by Linda Bolhuis) could be for you, or would make the ideal Valentine's day gift for a frog lover!

Sterling silver frog pendants
If earrings aren't enough as a Valentine's day gift, you can always add Zarah's matching Love Frog pendant/necklace. This comes with a large bale so could easily be threaded onto a cord or leather thong rather than a thin chain. I was also very much taken with Taos Trading's 3D climbing tree frog pendant, with a peridot bead. Peridot is traditionally associated with openness, growth and prosperity, and is the birthstone for August. For something a bit different, you could also go for an Alan K Millacreli silver frog pendant, made from sterling silver and millefiori glass. And if it's sterling silver frog charms you're after rather than full-size pendants, then Amazon does a great one with real emeralds.
